10 Proven Ways to Improve Your Emotional Resilience

4. Taking care of yourself is a proven way to improve emotional resilience

When we are dealing with prolonged stress it can become easy to neglect ourselves. We often look for comfort in junk food, and too much of it. Alcohol intake often increases to the point of feeling lousy the following day. Sleep patterns can become disrupted, exercise ignored and personal hygiene can deteriorate. Putting on weight, having hangovers, feeling tired, being unfit and smelling bad are not going to help strengthen your resilience.[5][6]

What to do: Make a point of sticking to your routine whenever you are stressed out and over time you will become more disciplined. Don’t be tempted to binge eat and drink, but also don’t deprive yourself completely, some dark chocolate and a glass of red wine can help de-stress.
